The imprint behavior of chemical solution deposited SrBi2Ta2O9(SBT) thin films has been investigated. The imprint properties were evaluated by hysteresis loop and pulse polarization measurements. Several parametric variables such as voltage, temperature, thickness and electrode stack structure were used to investigate possible imprint mechanisms. The domain configuration prior to imprinting appears to be an influential factor. If a film is not saturated, imprint rates are more rapid and the voltage shift is accompanied by polarization loss.
